Charges: OUI liquor/resisting arrest
Result: not guilty; jury trial and license saved.
The Commonwealth claimed that my client’s vehicle struck two parked cars because he consumed enough alcohol to impair his ability to drive a vehicle. They also alleged that prior to his arrest my client got into a fighting stance and resisted arrest. The officer’s noted a strong smell of alcohol and physical signs of impairment as well. After cross-examination, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty for both charges in less than 5 minutes!
